GFC turn table on mixed Brazilian side
By Treiston Joseph
Georgetown Football Club (GFC) took down a mixed Brazilian side 2-0 on Saturday evening in a rematch between the two sides at the GFC ground, Bourda. With GFC losing the first match last year to a much more competitive Brazilian unit, they were able to produce good enough play on a water-logged pitch to come out victorious.
It was obvious the Brazilian lacked some steam by their lacklustre play and fitness, despite a promising opening 10 minutes of good attacking football. However, the damp condition was a big factor in the match.
GFC showed flashes of brilliance, especially when Ralph Parris had a brilliant first touch from a right flank cross that he easily tapped in for the first goal of the game in the 30th minute.
GFC also played poor football at points in the game, especially in front of goal where there were numerous chances in the first half to score but wayward shots were the results. The second half was much of the same with GFC dominating the game, but failing to produce good finishes.
Mark Roache sealed the deal in the 60th minute for GFC with an easy shot to the right of the Brazilian custodian, who most times found himself out of position. GFC lost 2-1 in the first fixture last December and with the club winning 2-0 this time around, Manager of GFC Faizal Khan has promised a playoff to determine the victor of the series with a date to be determined.
